I'm simply SHOCKED! Shocked, I say!

Clinton Foundation to keep Harvey Weinstein's $250,000 donation
The Clinton Foundation will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein following the accusations of sexual harassment and rape.

The foundation said Sunday that donations, ranging from $100,000 to $250,000, have already been spent on projects, The Daily Mail reported.

The move to keep the money was expected following tweets from the foundation’s spokesman Craig Minassian.

“Suggesting @ClintonFdn return funds from our 330,000+ donors ignores the fact that donations have been used to help people across the world,” Minassian wrote on Twitter.

"Already been spent" is total BULLSHIT. I'm sure they could return $250,000 or take $250,000 out of their funds to compensate Weinstein's victims or to the causes of his victims' choosing.

Heaven forbid that the Clintons show even a smidgen of a moral compass. And Hillary wonders why she didn't get more women voting for her. :roll:

So let me get this straight: the foundation should dip into its coffers and give money to a habitual sex offender. This is your idea of a good plan.

Yea, all of this wanting to give the money back is a purely emotional response, there is no real logic to it.

earmarking a charity around abuse victims is one thing, giving it back is sort of funding his legal defense.
